Passive - -

This ability let Ornn advantage to buy items even when in lane to make and give him items advantage, in addition he can be more present as he don't need to recall, so he can roam or still get some experience and gold.

And all of his team have the option to buy one Masterwork item.

Q - -

This ability let Ornn slow his enemies and make a pillar for his E or just to block their way.

W - -

This ability let Ornn damage, CC resist as he can't be CCed during his W and a shield.

If used correctly it will apply Brittle

E - -

This ability gives Ornn good stun and damage scaling with armor and MR.

R - -

A huge zoning ability and if used right can be a game changer.

i take these runes.


Fleet Footwork
Phase Rush

3X Greater Quints Runes of Armor = 12.8 armor
9X Greater Glyphs of Scaling Magic Resist = 1.44(lvl 1) - 27 (level 18) magic resist
9X Greater Seals of Scaling Armor = 1.44(lvl 1) - 27 (level 18)- armor
9X Greater Mark of Armor = 8.19 armor

i take Greater Quints Runes of Armor so Ornn will have better sustain during early game.

i take Greater Glyphs of Scaling Magic Resist because until mid game bot lane wont face an huge magic damage and from level 8 the scaling gives more Magic Resist then the not scaling one.

i take Greater Seals of Scaling Armor so late game Ornn will have the option to be in the middle of the fight.

And last i take Greater Mark of Armor runes because it give a good sustain in the early game against the ADC.

Early game items

The best item out of the 3 supports items Ornn can use, give good sustain and make sure you will have your profit on the lane, always try to get the cannon minions while you can (just don't be too risky for it).

every support need to have the ability to make vision, it's so much important for catching a gank before it happens, if you can't control the vision with yellow wards and control wards (if the enemy destroy or have huge movement speed) you must buy this item early game and you shouldn't wait till mid game.

I recommend to start with this item so you would be able to upgrade your support item the for more gold income.

Early game making vision is more important then denying the enemy vision,
so this trinket make the job.

I don't recommend potions on Ornn

Support items

Face of the mountain This item give a good shield based of your health, and giving more stacks for spoils of war.

This item make your active items cooldown 20% less, it work very good with the right item combination

Eye of the Equinox gives good sustain and take 1 space instead of 2 if you go with face of the mountain and ruby sightstone

Core items

Gives very good stats against a bursting bot lane (like Sona or Brand) and gives a huge shield

This item gives a good sustain for long fights, it gives a passive that increase the effect of Ornn's W shield, and have a wonderful active.

A grate item that give a lot of sustain for you and your ADC.

Masterwork items

Gives much more armor and MR just for 500 gold

give much more health regen,mana regen and health just for 500 gold

Give huge MR bonus and health for 1000 gold

Tank items

Have a lot of armor, health and movement speed.

Gives mana sustain, armor and very good passive especially against auto attack champions

Have good magic resist, good sustain.

Good item against auto attack team, gives 2 debuffs when being attacked.

Let you get a lot of hp and awesome hp regen out of combat.

Gives magic resist, mana sustain, hp and a good passive if your carry (maybe mid lane) is AP

Very strong item for team fight when there is ap and ad damage from the enemy, should be late game item for both passive and active.

Good item for AOE slow and better damage and mana sustain.

Boots upgrades

This boots let you roam to mid lane and back to bot lane.

Good against AD team especialy based on basic attacks.

Good against ap and a lot of stuns.

Warding items

Every time you recall or get to base you should buy a control ward so you can have a better vision control and can get a better ganks.

After you buy a sightsone you can use this trinket to deny more vision to the enemy team. Not a must buy if you need more then the 3 stacks of the sightsone.

The first recall after getting level 9 you should get this trinket as it have a huge vision control, you should have a sightstone until this level (most of the games)

  • look in the "Vision and ward placement" chapter for more information

Things to keep in mind while building

  • First of all you are a support, you should be with your team mates (not must be the adc).
  • You shouldn't stuck to one build, every game need his own build, think of what kind of damage the enemy have, they are bursting or dealing damage over time, lethality good against non armor champions and so on...
  • Don't sure what to buy? You should buy the basic item that can be build into both items.

Ornn's game play

As Ornn you should poke your enemy with Q,

while engaging with the combo of Q to make a terrain, then E to stun them and get close, and then W for shield and brittle, keep in mind if you don't E into a wall you should wait a bit for your pillar.

Use R while team fight to zone the enemies and when they think they are safe use the second cast to smash them again.

1) You should use your Q pillar in order to achieve successful E, you can do it by making the enemy move from your Q nearer to a wall. I suggest to use your Q pillar in the middle of the lane so you will much better E option.
2) You should auto attacks brittled champion only when you think no on will stun them, in this way their stuns would be better.
3) You may consider to upgrade item sightstone after you used all/most of the stacks because it will refill it self when you upgrade.
4) Upgrade Redemption into Salvation and Locket of the Iron Solari into Circlet of the Iron Solari refreshes the cooldown on the active.
Back to Top


Synergy with ADC

As Ornn make it hard for the enemies to disengage it gives Vayne more opportunity to land he 3rd basic attack for her W passive Silver Bolts, and her E Condemn as she can stun with the pillar too have combo with a successful Condemn, Ornn can land his E Searing Charge and chain lock.

Kalista's kit goes perfect for Ornn's. The potential to engage with her ult Fate's Call while the enemy have brittle is awesome and they won't be able to disengage easily so it will get Kalista enough time to land her E Rend

Brittle and Ashe Ult Enchanted Crystal Arrow can make the longest stun in the game. In addition you can make your target slowed for ever.

Vission and ward placement

Vision and ward placement is very important thing in the game, especially in the laning phase, knowledge is power.
One of the problems in low elo level is the lack of vision or thinking that only the support should use wards.
There are five different types of wards.

1) -
+can have up to 2 charges.

+the wards have stealth

+can be a target for Teleport
-each player can have up to 3 of them on the map simultaneously
-stealth that start some seconds after being placed (can be destroyed by that time)
-the wards are temporary
more information

-each player can have up to 1 of it on the map simultaneously.
-take a an item slot.
-cost 75 gold each
-don't have a stealth

more information

Vision and right warding can lead to neutralize a gank from the jungle or roam from other lane, can save you from a enemy team trap (like if the hiding in the bush), and can help defend/secure jungle objectives such as red and blue buff, dragon and baron.

Warding can be used for 3 main things.

1) Defensive - when you make vision that inform you before you are being attack or ganked, most likely will be in the rivers or jungle neer the lane.
2) Objective - when you make vision that inform you about the status of the objective, like in the dragon or baron pit, or need the blue buff or red buff.
3) Aggressive - when you make vision in the enemy jungle so you can take his buff.

Questions you need to ask yourself before placing a ward

1) What i want to achieve?
2) Where would it give more vision?
3) What am i risking by going to there ?(farm, may be ambushed)
4) How easy the enemy would destroy the ward? (especially for blue/control wards)

Don't do

ward placed too close to lane, not effective enough to see the jungle before he start the gank if you push the lane.
ward too close to the walls so he lost a lot of vision
the ward will be spotted very fast and will be destroyed


placed where the vision can show the objective (blue buff) and the junction to see incoming enemies that pass by.
placed where the vision can show the objective (the dragon) and the junction that give deeper vision on the bot side.
placed so the ward get stealth from the bush and the vision can show the junction
placed so that ward get stealth from the bush and the vision can show the incoming ganks soon enough to do moves
placed in the place to maximize the vision with bonus from the bush

While making a rune page you will start by choosing a main path and secondary path and you will get a bonus from the combination of the paths (see below). From the main path you will chose one key stone, and 3 runes that each one of them will need to be selected from different groups. From the secondary path you will need to chose only 2 runes from a different groups.

My ideas about the runes and optional rune pages

For Resolve keystone i think Aftershock will fit better the kit as fighting you not always neer your adc and act more as tank in the fight.

For inspiration, hard to predict how useful will be each of the keystones but even Summoner Specialist will have his own playstyle.

I think that Resolve main path will give more stats for sustain, and the inspiration path will give more "items based" sustain and new tactics, for example to cocombinelacial Augment with Font of Life, or starting with smite to help jungler/counter jungle with your ADC.

The main Runes you would want to have will be
The Ultimate Hat - so you will be able to spam your ult ala lot
Conditioning - it scales with your E while make you tankier.

I think to go with inspiration as main path will reresultn low prperformanceor most of the game.
